Today is National Public Lands Day, and while I can’t be out exploring today, I’ve had the privilege of visiting 15 national parks in 2018 alone!!!!! My favorite public land by far though isn’t even a national park! It’s Pisgah National Forrest in NC. What are other people’s favorite public lands? #npld#findyourpark#nationalparks#thislandisyourland#explorenature#usa
“This I may say is the first time I have been at church in California” - John Muir on his ascent of Cathedral Peak in September of 1869.
Nearly 150 years later I was also able to experience climbing the 700 feet to the summit of Cathedral Peak, though by a variation of the Southeast Buttress, allowing us to descend the route Muir had climbed. We witnessed the Tuolumne Meadows sunset from the summit (which in turn led to quite the interesting hours of descending under the moonlight and stars). ▪️

Mom and I were talking about bad Braille today. My favorite - this spring I noticed the FDR Memorial in DC, which was purposely made with accessibility for those with disabilities in mind, got the Braille wrong on their main sign. LIVIKG... maybe the @nationalparkservice should fix this. #proofreading#braille#accessibility#embarrassing#nationalparks
